Deep in the Elgin Valley, on the shores of the
Grabouw, Gateway to the Overberg. Sir Lowry’s Pass brings visitors from Cape Town out of the basin, over the Hottentots Holland mountains and into heaven. Leaving the fantastic view of False Bay and the Cape Peninsula behind you, you are presented with the magical site of huge stretches of forests, seemingly endless mountain peaks, vineyards and orchards.
Yes you’re in apple country! The Elgin Valley borders the Kogelberg Biosphere and is one of the richest fruit growing regions in South Africa. It even has an Apple Museum, one of only two in the world, that documents the history of the apple industry in the region.
Hiking and mountain bike trails through fynbos and pine forests and awesome scenic drives are among the rich and varied experiences which Grabouw has to offer. Add a range of water sports, wine tasting, live performances at the Paul Cluver amphiteater, apple picking and three fabulous farm stalls to your list of things to do and you may well never leave!
